Amish Shah on CNBC Closing Bell discussing Twitter IPO

Millennium Search founder and CEO Amish Shah was recently interviewed on CNBC’s Closing Bell to discuss Twitter’s IPO. The thriving social media network went public on November 7th, offering 70 million shares, equating to roughly 13% of the company. Shah is bullish on the new IPO, commemorating the IPO by purchasing 1000 shares at just over $45 per share. With his second child due in January, Shah said on CNBC that this stock is for his coming child’s college education, and is expecting a payoff in the long term. Although many investors debate Twitter’s profit potential, Shah sees substantial upside. Twitter’s Q3 report showed $422 million in sales, two-thirds the way towards breaking even. Shah also indicates he is impressed by Twitter’s growing audience and its user demographic. Twitter appeals primarily to younger users, a market Shah sees as favorable. A substantial portion of this market is leaving places like Facebook in favor of more appealing social platforms like Twitter. In the interview, Shah pointed out how the public uses Twitter, noting the number of followers many celebrities; businesses and government entities engage and manage. Citing Lady Gaga and her followers exceeding seven digits as an example, Shah pointed out that Twitter has become the new EF Hutton; “When someone important tweets, everybody listens.” Tweets from such sources force magazines, radio stations, and networks to pay attention. When an executive at Apple tweets, the stock moves, demonstrating the current reach and impact of Twitter. The platform’s power in affecting change in governments has also been seen in recent years. Specifically, this was seen when tweets helped organize protestors in the Arab... read more

Millennium Search CEO Featured on Fox Business

Amish Shah, CEO and founder of Millennium Search and managing partner at Sierra Maya Ventures, was recently heard voicing his opinion on Fox Business about the problem of too many tech startups rushing headlong into IPOs. On Money with Melissa Francis, Shah, along with Capitalist Pig Hedge Fund Manager Jonathan Hoenig, voiced their thoughts on the announcement that Zulily, a somewhat profitable flash deal site, has announced its plans to go public. This, following a similar announcement from Twitter earlier this year, has caused many investment professionals to wonder whether or not tech companies are being too quick to rush for IPOs. As a tech startup investor, Shah has an interesting perspective on the issue at hand. While Hoenig stated he felt that this was a good thing and a natural outgrowth of capitalism, Shah disagreed. When host Melissa Francis asked whether this was a repeat of the tech startup bubble in 1999, Shah indicated that he thought it was. “It’s definitely a repeat of 1999. If you look recently, we’ve heard of candy crush going public. Are you kidding me? A game like that going public out there? Yes, I am for capitalism as an investor, but there’s lots of risk in what Zulily is doing. I think there are better players out there that are going to be going public, like Square.” Zulily and Twitter are considered high risk investments because they are posting little to no profits. Zulily had a profit of just over $2 million in the first half of the year. While these aren’t horrible numbers, they aren’t highly successful numbers either. Twitter is... read more
